A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset, for several years to Cheshire and more recently we have wandered in our touring too, taking in visits to Cheltenham, Taunton and Canterbury). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.
The site continues to grow in scope, despite having made its first appearance twenty-two years ago in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, summary scorecards, detailed scorecards, match reports and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at (going all the way back to the club’s inaugural season in 1959), the Badgers ‘Honours Board’, a list of the current club officers and links to our social media ‘presence’.

PLEASE NOTE that Sunday’s game with Dormansland has been cancelled as they were unable to field a side. Darrell has found us a replacement fixture at short notice and we will be heading north of the river for the first time in a long time to visit Chiswick CC for the first time ever. Full details can be found on the fixtures page including the usual map links.

A team’s worth of Badgers joined a gathering of some size today at the funeral of Andy Curtis, who played 25 times for us over the past few years, including being an integral part of a couple of our recent tours. Andy died much too young and will be sorely missed.
A warm and sunny afternoon on Ham Common saw the Badgers lose their unbeaten record for 2022, but another good game. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

Despite the weather not being particularly kind to us we had a fantastic game against Thames Ditton on Sunday which ended in a last gasp victory in the gloaming and was decorated by a record breaking performance from Jake. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a full match report (for the first time in more than a season), the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

PLEASE NOTE that the gap in the fixture slate for this coming Sunday has been filled, courtesy of Darrell’s efforts, by a game at Thames Ditton who we have played once before, back in 1980 (and no, I did not). The fixtures page has been updated with the full details, including a map link, and the Google Map with the locations of our 2022 opposition has also been amended accordingly.
The 2022 season started in the lovely surroundings of Otford in Kent, and for once the weather was kind to us for the traditional opener against Beechwood. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.
Whilst almost all of it is automated these days the start of the new season brings a large number of changes to this site, most of them in the plumbing behind the scenes, and paradoxically that probably means that things do not get checked as thoroughly as they might in the past. Therefore if I have missed a mistake or other discrepancy that you spot, please shout.
The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the drop down menus at the top of the page (under Badgers’ Burrow).
This site is very much a work in progress and if you have any
